Last November, JFCY held a benefit to raise funds for valuable programs that assist youth. We publicized the event on the JFCY blog here.
Guest Blogger Tracy Chen, a third-year Ryerson Journalism student volunteered at the JFCY Benefit and writes about her experience below. We’d like to thank all our volunteers and hope that all who attended enjoyed the event!

 It was a great night of live music as the Gladstone Hotel was filled with people who were there to support Justice for Children and Youth (JFCY). 
Some of the talented musicians were Jen Schaffer and the Shiners, Bidiniband, Jack Connolly and the New Bend. There was also a silent auction with many generous donations of artwork, tickets and books. 
As the JFCY volunteer, I spent the night greeting guests at the door and wrapping up the lovely artwork that the supporters had won. I got to meet some people that allow JFCY to have invaluable programs such as Street Youth Legal Services and youth engagement. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I hope more youth come to the event next year.
